I’d like to revise my opinion of Liz’s opinion of me. I don’t think she has any interest whatsoever other than a friend. I think I wanted to see something there that wasn’t, and jumped to a lot of unfounded conclusions. So, just to set the record straight, in case any awkwardness would result otherwise. (I know the chances of her reading this blog are basically nil, since nobody reads this blog but me and apparently Haley on occasion, but I just want to cover my bases.) She posted in her blog again, and the only thing she said that might be remotely related was that in the past month she “read 2 books that have made me acutely aware of the pain of being near someone that you love but can’t be with.” I know that pain, but I don’t think she was referring to me, as I’m not near her. I’m guessing JD, ’cause everybody loves JD, much to Ben’s chagrin! I suppose Ben:me as JD:Ben or Brent:Ben. Even though both Brent and JD are married. Sometimes I give Ben a hard time in this blog, and I’d like to apologize for that. Although he really has had more success with girls than I have, he hasn’t had the success, and that puts us all in the same boat. And I guess the difference between Ben:me and JD:Ben or Brent:Ben is that Ben hasn’t succeeded either.

Oh, well. I gotta go to work.

Ahh! I’m on fire!

It’s been a slow couple of days at work, so I figured I’d keep this open in the background and type stuff throughout the day, so this post may be pretty random in terms of subject matter. To start with, here are a couple of random sayings, done last year to keep track of prior files here at work:

Start spiraling down in a Talespin, Ohio
Stalingrad is not a city, boy!
“Vile Zapper!” Yoda whispered to Palpatine
Try not, Kyle, to damage your style
News: Thinner, Zestier, Anti-Amy!
Kindness ignites. . .

Here’s another one of those Gadget pictures I like(click for the whole picture). This one comes to us from Rye, from Beijing, China. I’m not sure what the story is behind this pic, but whatever it is, I like it. Plus, that is the most perfect color of hair in current existence.

While I’m posting random things, I might as well post my Travels Memoirs, written in the fall of 2000 regarding Travels, which was put on in the Spring of 2000. I don’t remember if I’ve explained a ton about Travels, but basically it’s the story of Marco Polo and his trip to China, with a lot of highly fictionalized accounts about his girlfriend and relationship with Kublai Khan and the other governors of the land. Although written by my friend Nate Winder when he was only 18 (and orchestrated by me when I was 17), it turned out pretty good. In those memoirs, the first part goes through every song in the show with my opinions and recollections about each one, and the second part gives an overview of my entire experience with the orchestrating and the directing of the pit orchestra. So if you’re bored by the in-depth song stuff, skip to the overview.

At this exact moment (11:00 AM), my grandparents are signing some papers closing the deal to sell their house. My grandpa is in an Assisted Living Center, and my grandma is living in a retirement community not far from the Jordan River Temple. There’s been a lot of stress about the whole sale, however, mainly due to my aunt Becky having some ulterior motives with regards to the money, but most of what’s suspected is just that:speculation. I’m not going to try to outline the whole story right now, since I still don’t know all the details. I just hope that everything works out for the best.

That’s probably enough for now. If I think of anything else I’ll add it.

I can blog from work!

Just a quick note to say I can post from work now! Angelfire is no longer porn! Yay!
